Rugby Free Secondary School opened in 2016 and has recently moved into a brand new purpose-built facility. The road hasn’t been smooth but it is a school committed to providing success for all of its students and providing a workplace that supports its staff to ensure they are able to work to the best of their ability for our students every day. You won’t find teachers and staff anywhere else who are as committed to a school’s purpose and supporting its success.
We are currently graded as inadequate by Ofsted (May 2019) but on our first monitoring visit (December 2019) it was recognised just how much the school has improved in such a short space of time. Our aim is to be at least ‘good’ by July 2021 and this role will play a key part in helping the school achieve this.
The ideal candidate would be expected to;
Contribute to the effective running of the school, providing financial support under the direction and guidance of the School Business Manager (SBM) and Chief Finance Officer (CFO). To ensure that best value for money is achieved.
Work as part of a wider Trust Finance Team working flexibly across the Trust under the direction of the CFO.
